Food Lion is voluntarily recalling its Food Lion brand homestyle buttermilk biscuits out of concerns that they may contain listeria monocytogenes, the company announced Friday.

Food Lion officials say while there have been no reports of illnesses at this time, the biscuits are being recalled as a precaution after the T. Marzetti Company said there was a possible contamination issue with listeria monocytogenes at one of its plants.

Food Lion is recalling all dates of the biscuits.

If you develop a listeria infection, you may experience fever, muscle aches, nausea and/or diarrhea. 

Customers are urged to return the product to their local store for a full refund. Customers also can call Food Lion's customer support center at 1-800-210-9569.
